Nikon Nikkor 50mm 1:1.8 G
Incredibly happy for this little lens
Verified purchase: Yes | Condition: Pre-owned
Although Nikon stop advertising this lens looooong ago, they are still manufacturing it because there is a huge demand for this product. Optically, its formula is exceptional, the best engineered in Micro-Nikkor family. Its performance is stellar, mark the word: stellar. An incredible sharpness for less £300. I use it mostly for macro and it's also a good walk-around companion for street and even portraiture on DX cameras. The look is also unique and it feels really solid in hands. The design flaw often pointed out is the focus switch ring but this ring was quite common on certain series of Nikkor lens (like the excellent 35-70 f2.8); take in consideration that for macro, you will use it all Manual for accurate focus. Solid construction, great optics, great value for money, still made in Japan: Highly recommended.Read full review

Excellent product, highly recommended.
I have had this lens a short while now and I absolutely love it. I have found it to be very sharp and I love how close I can focus. It has opened up a whole new world of macro for me.
Great lens to add to the equipment range
Excellent lens for macro work. Very pleased with results which are as expected from reviews read on reliable photography sites.
Great lens to use and handle
I have a lot of big nikon lens that i find heav'y when I'm out walking so I bought this lens because it is small and light, not knowing what it was like to handle or how good the pictures would be i put it on my camera and went out on to the Somerset levels and took a few shots I must say I'm very pleased with it, easy to handle and very good pictures from a small lens, I will use this lens a lot
